9 Months Old

16 lbs 11 oz - 4th %
28 1/2" - 62nd %
17" head -There isn't much this little peanut can't do...even if she is only in the 4th percentile of weight! In this week alone she is crawling, playing peek-a-boo, clapping her hands, growing her 3rd tooth and finally sleeping through the night again...even if she has to cry it out.

Thank you, Brooke!

With a little coaching from Brooke, her 5 year old cousin, Sammie learned how to ride a bike without training wheels! Nothing like a 5 year old cousin to teach you all the things you need to know.
Now, we need to get home and pull out her big girl bike.
Hooray, Sammie!

Triathlon & Golf

Robbie continues his reign with the golf trophy for another 2 years.
Not only was there a triathlon for the adults...the kids also enjoyed one of their own. Coached by Dawna, Summer, Jessica and Erica.Swimming, biking and running...everyone's a winner!

A few stops along the way...

My grandma has a timeshare across the street from Temple Square so we spent the week at The Kimball in downtown Salt Lake City. The location is beyond perfect. We took walks up to Memory Park.In the mornings and/or evenings, Blake and I enjoyed continuing the Memory Park trail up and around the canyon until it dropped down to the State Capitol Bldg.Blake and Sammie snuck in a tour of the Conference Center during one of Alayna's naps.
We visited Grandma Holiday in Centerville.Brigham Young UniversitySammie successfully rolled down every hill on campus.Blake and I replenished our alumni gear at the bookstore.No visit to Utah is complete without a real estate tour. We drove around Park City and Jordanelle and then stopped by our first home on Traverse Mountain...and yes, we knocked on the door for a tour!

Park City

We met Kent & Ginger's 5 girls and Nate/Brittany/Noah up in Park City for the day before we headed up to the family reunion. We have been showing Sammie videos of the Alpine Slide for weeks!I could hear her screaming all the way down the mountain.
